Can I wear a contact lens after having keratitis?
NOV 09, 2015
Corneal inflammation related to contact lenses is often treated with topical steroids and stopping the usage of contact lenses. Occasionally, the inflammation is severe enough in the cornea to lead to permanent scarring. Even after an episode of contact lens related keratitis, many patients do resume contact lens wear without any further issues. Proper care and contact lens hygiene is important to prevent this from happening again. If you aren't under the care of an ophthalmologist you should see one right away.
